AU.S. Department of Justice probe into the Chicago Police Department revealed that officers undergo very poor training and that the Independent Police Review Authority spearheaded biased investigations, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
A review by the feds of more than 100 IPRA files revealed a consistent unwillingness to probe or dispute officers’ narratives, according to a source familiar with the DOJ’s findings. The report is also expected to point to specific use-of-force cases that revealed insufficient training in de-escalation techniques.
More broadly, the investigation found violations of the U.S. Constitution and federal law by officers when it comes to use of force, racial disparities as well as other systemic problems.
